Tasting Notes

There is unquestionable richness in the palate. Full burst of beautiful fruit followed by mid palate unctuousness. The finish is long and very, very silky.

Production Notes

The 2007 vintage brought us extraordinary fruit in the Stags Leap District. A dry spring and a warm year in comparison to the previous two vintages greatly reduced the berry size on our property. The result was a harvest which produced wines of great concentration and depth, power and elegance.
